‘ANP not consulted on Saraiki province’

The Awami National Party (ANP) has started expressing concerns on a bill tabled earlier this week in the National Assembly, espousing creation of new province in Punjab. ANP leader Senator Haji Adeel has said that his party was not taken on board regarding the bill on South Punjab before being tabled in the lower house of the parliament. Talking to a private television channel on Saturday, Adeel said that the National Assembly could not issue instructions to the provincial assembly. He said that second paragraph of the resolution, which was tabled by the ruling Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), was against the provincial autonomy. The ANP leader was of the view that at least 100 articles of the constitution would have to be amended to carve out new provinces.
